Mi MAX 3 Pro - Black

Surprise! That is not the word we would use for the launch announcement of the Mi Max 3. Since, every detail including specifications, and press renders were leaked before the launch event. The Chinese smartphone maker has now made it all official in China. The most interesting part of this event was the pricing unveiling.

The Mi Max 3 price starts at Rs 17,299 approximately (1699 Yuan) for the 4GB RAM model. Whereas the price goes up to Rs 20,399 approximately (1999 Yuan) for the 6GB RAM model. The key highlight of the new Xiaomi phone is its large display and battery. But another most important configuration that you should be looking forward is the processor.

Mi Max 3: How big it is? 

It packs a Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 processor, which is the best-in-class chipset in terms of performance. Which means the large 6.9-inch full-HD+ display could offer a brilliant experience. Fortunately, there is no display notch, for those who hate it. The phone would be available in three colour options including Dark Blue, Dream Gold, and Meteorite Black.

Talking further on the Mi Max 3 specifications, it will be running on the latest MIUI based on Android 8.1 Oreo. As far as the camera department is concerned, it will be packing a dual-rear cameras set up. The primary sensor would be of 12MP resolution and a secondary sensor would be of 5MP resolution. Both of the sensors will pack a f/1.9 aperture lens and have the support of dual-LED flash and AI portrait mode.

For the selfie lovers, it will be packing an 8MP resolution snapper on the front, which will have a f/2.0 aperture. The selfie sensor will have the support of face recognition, soft light, and 1.12 micro pixels lens. All this would be powered by a 5500mAh capacity, which will support a Quick Charge 3.0 18W charging.
